A EuroDelight the BBC has shunned. For once.

And I am certain that it would have been invited to join in this:

"From April 2008 on, day in and day out,16 radio stations from 13 countries working in a consortium and 7 associate radio stations will co-produce and simultaneously broadcast programmes devoted to current affairs and society in the Europe of 27.

Broadcast daily, the programmes of this EUROPEAN (sic) network will include daily news reports, interviews, debates, magazines looking at subjects in greater depth and coverage of live events. The first broadcasts will go out in April 2008".

Pity the poor wretches of not just Slovenia and Bulgaria (their state radio stations are in the loop, and as newish boys, sucking up to the beak in the form of Margot Wallström was only to be expected) but of France, Germany and Spain, inter alia. But NOT Luxembourg. That terrible Reding woman will be most miffed.

While the BBC is not involved (yet...), there is a UK participant - CUR 1350 Cambridge University. I am sure that students will be gluing the tuning knob to 1350 that they will run no risk of missing europrogs. Mind you, the station's website does not want to load at present.
